  • May-Thurner Syndrome

    BACKGROUND: Embolic occlusion of intracranial vessels can be caused by material arising proximally, most commonly from the heart, the aorta, or the carotid or vertebral arteries, and rarely from systemic veins. May-Thurner syndrome is an uncommon condition in which there is impaired venous return because of[…][]

  • Bacterial Infections

    Abstract Three different pathogenic mechanisms are apparent for paraparesis in association with a bacterial infection: a spinal cord compression caused by either an epidural abscess or a vertebral collapse due to spondylitis, an ischaemic spinal cord lesion as a result of septic thromboembolus in abdominal aorta,[…][]

  • Congenital Venous Malformation

    BACKGROUND: Complex forms of congenital venous malformation have defied proper classification and confounded therapy. Through a newly designed multidisciplinary approach, these venous defects were properly diagnosed and classified according to the Hamburg classification. Absolute ethanol was adopted as a new[…][]

  • Ruptured Baker's Cyst

    Abstract We report a case of Epstein-Barr (EB) infection that presented as an acute monoarthritis of the knee. This formed a Baker's cyst which ruptured into the gastrocnemius. The peripheral and synovial white blood counts were dominated by neutrophils. After repeated aspirations, spontaneous resolution[…][]

  • Hemophilia A

    Clotting factor products have been safe for HIV since 1985, and for hepatitis C since 1992. Few studies have reported on mortality in the total population of hemophilia patients after the period of risk of viral infection transmission. We studied the mortality, causes of death, and life expectancy of hemophilia[…][]

  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

    OBJECTIVE: To better understand the diagnosis of reflex sympathetic dystrophy of the lower extremities in pregnant women. SUBJECT: Disease analysis using a retrospective series of nine cases and a review of the literature (57 patients and 159 sites of reflex sympathetic dystrophy). RESULTS: This disorder should[…][]

  • Venous Insufficiency

    Abstract The medical history in a young man who developed varicose veins and venous insufficiency secondary to an acquired arteriovenous fistula in the thigh is presented. The radiological and clinical findings are discussed. The disease process in the development of varicose veins is not fully understood and cannot[…][]

  • Venous Insufficiency of Leg

    OBJECTIVE: The correlation between ovarian venous insufficiency and lower limb venous insufficiency remains poorly understood. Clinically, incompetent ovarian veins in association with lower extremity varicose veins are suspected when leg varicose veins are found in atypical distributions. Such distributions include[…][]
